Tracy Colina of Ohio, a longtime and very integral part of the Narrative Enneagram community, died on January 27. Even if you never met her in person, it is likely that you interacted with her if you enrolled in one of our programs prior to fall 2014. As our Training Program Manager and Registrar, she greeted you by phone or email when you inquired about a training, answered your questions, shared her enthusiasm for the Enneagram, and managed the myriad logistical issues and details involved in organizing classes. She was the “voice” of the Narrative Enneagram for many years, and her influence was immeasurable.Read more

As far as we know, this is the first study to examine the efficacy of the Enneagram to promote growth. It’s a step in the right direction – and we need more.Read more
My first exposure to the Enneagram came in 1994 when I was invited by a classmate at the Candler School of Theology to attend a workshop about personality types offered by a professor in the Master of Divinity program. Enthusiastic about this tool called the Enneagram, my friend encouraged me and a few others to immerse ourselves in this new wisdom. Little did I know that this chance encounter with the Enneagram would change my personal and vocational trajectory.Read more
